The Courtauld has been invited by the Queer Heritage Forum to join PrideOnline2020! From Monday, June 22, through Saturday, June 27, this week, check out @QHForum on Twitter for a series of events, podcasts, videos, craftivism activities and much more.

“The Queer Heritage Forum is a collection of international heritage sector workers/freelancers who are volunteering their time and energy to make Pride extra special this year. This is an unfunded, non-commercial, grassroots effort which aims to help build positive connections across the sector and we would love for you to be involved with the celebration!”

The project aims to connect individuals in a time where physical gatherings are challenging. Its virtual platform is an opportunity to share queer projects and materials beyond the localities of the institutions producing them. Last week saw interactions with a wide range of people, such as (to name a few): Jack Shoulder from the British Museum sharing the history of queer superheroes; Olympic diver, Greg Louganis reminiscing about his queer double dive
